Thursdays with NAMI: Author discusses codependency in “You Can’t Complete Me, But I Can”

Thursday, Dec. 8, 2022

For their seventh wedding anniversary, Hayley Kaplan bought her husband a customized back scratcher as a joke. The inscription read, “For that seven-year itch.” Except she was the one who began an unexpected and torturous affair later that year.

Torn between her marriage to a good man and someone she considered her “soul mate,” her strong attachment to two very different men led Hayley to seek professional help.

In the therapist’s office, she came to the startling realization that she was trying to fill a bottomless emotional void. It was only by looking inward for love that she could truly find her happily ever after.

Hayley Kaplan is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and author of the self-help memoir, “You Can’t Complete Me, But I Can.” Her book was specifically written to reach all the love-chasers, people pleasers, self-loathers, abuse-takers, and anyone else who would rather be loved than respected.
